Happy Late Valentine's Day and early St. Patrick's Day. This time of year is always tough as you never know what to expect from the weather. Tuesday in Denver we had 70 degree temperatures and then Thursday and today it's in the 30's and snowing. Go figure.
Time for our SAL check in sponsored by Heather at Stitching Lotus. This month has been a fun stitching month for me as I finally started the birthstone patterns from Shannon Christine Designs. I purchased several of the patterns last year and never got around to stitching them.
Below are some finishes from this series
I finished this one in January and it's the February Amethyst birthstone. The original pattern called for purple and gold and I changed it to silver.
The rest of these are February finishes, with some yet to be made into cards.
March Aquamarine, stitched as the pattern called for except I substituted DMC 783 for the Kreinik metallic.
Shannon's patterns are quick and fun to stitch and I love playing with the different colors. Expect to see a few more of these next month.
Other finishes for the month include two pieces for World of Charity Stitching
A few Mill Hill kits
Two "thank you's" requested by my youngest son for teachers that wrote him letters of recommendations. He's a senior in high school and busy applying for scholarships.
And a last piece for WOCS.
That's it so far. However, it's only the 24th and who knows what I might stitch this weeekend!
